And no matter how hard I cried for God to deliver me, He didn’t. That dark place didn’t go away because as I was pushing against the wall, I was building strength in my wings. As I was in that dark place, I was dying inside. The caterpillar that was me was dying and decaying, while something else was being formed. No matter the hard space you find yourself in, know that you can’t meet your purpose and fly without going through it and you don’t want to leave it too soon.

I'll Believe It When I See It

What is Jesus challenging you to believe?

“One of the twelve disciples, Thomas (nicknamed the Twin), was not with the others when Jesus came. They told him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I won’t believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his […]

As It Is Written...Persecution

Living Christian

Our Responsibility

The Devotional I Didn't Want To Write

Instead, those who are followers of Christ have been told specifically that we are to
1) Go and make disciples;
2) Teach Christ’s commands for observance;
3) Be both a preservative salt of the truth of God’s word and be a light to the world that showcases God; and perhaps the hardest of all
4) To Correct (gently) our fellow man who is not living according to God’s Word.

So, my fellow Brothers and Sisters of Christ: Do not be afraid to speak against sin in any format, but as you do speak, do it in love. We will be held accountable for what we speak just as others will be held accountable for what they receive.

Jesus Loves Me...

This I Know

“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that […]

The Cost

You may not have been called to preach the gospel, but if you are a follower of Christ, you have been called to live a life of purpose. And with that calling comes a cost that you must decide if you are willing to pay.
